Just working away and I asked one of my athletes if he wanted to participate in our upcoming 2016 Big Man camp for OL/DL..he stated no cause he wanted to tryout for a specific all star team and workout..no problem I totally understood
Although, this got me thinking…as a coach my players always here me say – you need to work the process- what do I mean by this? I have no problem with this athlete or any other athlete wanting to play in all star games but I ask this- EVERYONE wants to win but what are you going to do in your athletic and academic process to get there?
I asked Diesel the same question and he said he went to as many camps as possible when he was younger…I asked one of my highly skilled athlete the same question – he attends as many camps as he can afford but does a ton to get better..says he rather spend his money on getting better with great coaching
The process…..learning as much as you can from a variety of coaches….taking these new found attributes in helping you succeed
I think about Michael O’ Connor- Vanier Cup champ and QB- would he be as good as he is by just playing games in Canada? Or by going to camps…training schools in the USA? Probably not- actually CERTAINLY not.
He won on that Saturday because of the work he put in…the process of his development..the hours of training with proper coaching
Agree or disagree but highly skilled athletes spend millions of hours honing their craft-spending endless time on a basketball court/ ice rink/ football field by themselves bettering their game- they went thru the PROCESS of hard endless work
